On the last day of the conference, experts will focus on the Data Economy Russia 2024 state program, “Data Security,” and will use examples of specific infrastructure projects implemented in Russian companies and in government agencies to explore the key issues pertaining to data protection. Moreover, the discussions that take place during the conference will be recapped, and key solutions regarding an accelerated shift from initiatives and roadmaps to the full digital transformation of Russia by 2024 will be set forward.


The increase of the level of digitalization is inevitably accompanied by the emergence of new cyber threats. At the same time, we still can’t tell exactly how information systems and information security technologies that go beyond cryptography actually work; there is no classifier for types of vulnerabilities. Nevertheless, public authorities and business communities must introduce advanced technologies to prevent threats. The modern digital world requires companies to take information and security systems very seriously, and governments must develop rules and regulations to ensure the security of commercial information and the privacy of users' personal data, in the face of uncertainty. What are the key principles of building a secure information space while moving towards the digital economy?
